February 24, 2018 Flood Monitoring Update

By February 24, 2018

TRWD flood monitoring staff continues to monitor reservoir conditions 24 hours a day.  The latest update of the conditions at the District reservoirs is as follows:

  • Lake Bridgeport and Richland-Chambers are not expected to reach conservation level at this time
  • Eagle Mountain Lake is expected to surpass conservation level later today.  This will engage the uncontrolled service spillway for a low level discharge (<500 cfs).  The reservoir level will continue to be monitored and controlled releases will be made as necessary to maintain a safe operating level.
  • Cedar Creek is above conservation and controlled flood discharges have begun.

Please call the Flood Hotline for further information.

817-720-4296.

If prompted to leave a message, the flood monitor on duty will return your call within 30 minutes
